Pioneer in Automobile Emissions Reduction to Address Members of World Economic Forum on 'Green' Job-Growth Initiatives in 'Putting Climate Change to

REDWOOD CITY, CA | Posted on January 22nd, 2008

Details: Nanostellar CEO Pankaj Dhingra will join a list of distinguished panelists at the World Economic Form in Davos, Switzerland, to address the entrepreneurial opportunities created by global warming. The panel, which takes place January 24, 2008, will turn its attention to the opportunities that the development and growth of "green" initiatives can play in job creation and economic stimulation. Titled "Green Jobs: Putting Climate Change to Work," the panel will explore the prospects for job growth in different industries and regions, and the roles that business can play by partnering in investment and skills development. Bjorn Stigson, president of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, will act as moderator. Other panel speakers include Richard Lambert, Director-General, Confederation of British Industry (CBI), United Kingdom; Guy Ryder, General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Belgium; Juan Somavia, Director-General, International Labour Organization (ILO), Geneva; and Achim Steiner, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Nairobi. Nanostellar, honored by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer 2008, develops nanomaterial-based catalysts used to clean up noxious exhaust emissions from diesel engines and reduce automotive pollution. Note: Dhingra will also write a daily blog entry from Davos during the duration of the World Economic Forum (January 23-27) on Greentech Media (http://www.greentechmedia.com/blogs-home.html). Location and Time: The panel is part of the World Economic Forum's annual meeting, which takes place in Davos, Switzerland, January 23-27, 2008. The panel presentation "Putting Climate Change to Work" is slated for January 24 from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM at the Hotel Waldhuus in Davos. Biography of Pankaj Dhingra
